Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan: New Release with Giveaway

I was sent this book from publisher.  My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review. 

"Her mother abandoned her, her father disowned her, and her husband left her. Can Brooklyn be convinced that it is possible to forgive the greatest of betrayals?

Brooklyn Myers escaped her broken home and her embittered, unloving father by eloping to Reno at the age of 17. But when she was pregnant with their first child, her husband abandoned her as well. Not welcome back home in Thunder Creek, Brooklyn stayed in Reno and raised her daughter Alycia on her own, doing her best to make sure Alycia never knew the heartache and rejection Brooklyn herself had known.

When her estranged husband Chad Hallston dies, he leaves the family home in Thunder Creek to his daughter. Believing it is the best way to give her daughter a stable home, Brooklyn does what she thought she would never do. She goes home to the orchard and wine country of Southwest Idaho. There, she encounters Chad’s best friend, Derek Johnson, a part time sheriff's deputy who also owns an organic produce farm next door. Derek was never a fan of former bad girl Brooklyn Myers, but he made a promise to his dying friend that he would be the father to Alycia that Chad had never been.

Although Derek and Brooklyn get off to a bumpy start, he and Alycia quickly form a bond. And soon, Derek realizes that he wants Brooklyn to trust him too . . . even knowing that her trust won’t come easily. And then he realizes he wants even more than her trust. He wants to win her love.

While Brooklyn may be tempted to give her heart to Derek, risking her daughter’s happiness is another story. Will Brooklyn hold onto her self-reliance for dear life, or will she come to understand that the greatest gift she can give her daughter is showing her how to love and trust others?"

“Maybe there was no right or wrong, no black or white, only a thousand shades of gray when it came to pain and what we each held ourselves responsible for.”

So many people have told me this was their favorite book. I have heard so many great things about Mia Sheridan and her work, and I knew this is the book I wanted to start with as I have been wanting to read several of her books.

This immediately grabbed my attention and I did not want to put it down. If you pick this up, make sure you clear your schedule as you will not want to walk away without knowing what is going to happen.

Normally I am not a fan of stories that go between past and present, but Mia Sheridan did it in a way that it just worked. I loved the past scenes from when Archer was a child. They were so emotional, and pulled his story together. I also liked the duel perspective between Bree and Archer and that it took place in present day.

I loved that there was a mystery behind what happened to both Archer and Bree. Layers are peeled away as you get to know both characters. You will laugh and you will cry. I loved that Archer still shows a sense of humor beneath all of his pain.

This is also pretty steamy, which is really not my thing. I wish there were a few less sexy scenes, but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the story.

Overall, I loved this. I want to read everything Mia Sheridan puts out and has put out. If everything else is a as good as this, she quickly will become a new to me favorite author.
